    FF OO RR KK II NN SS TT AA LL LL AA TT II OO NNIt is extremely important that your RockShox fork is installed correctly by a qualifiedbicycle mechanic. Improperly installed forks are extremely dangerous and can resultin severe and/or fatal injuries.

    1. Remove the existing fork from the bicycle and the crown race from the fork. Measure the length of thefork steerer tube against the length of the RockShox steerer tube. The RockShox steerer tube may needcutting to the proper length. Make sure there is sufficient length to clamp the stem (refer to the stemmanufacturer's instructions).

    2. Install the headset crown race (29.9mm for 1 1/8" steerers) firmly against the top of the fork crown.Install the fork assembly on the bike. Adjust the headset until you feel no play or drag.

    3. Install the brakes according to the manufacturer's instructions and adjust brake pads properly. Use thefork only with disc style brakes mounted through the provided mounting holes. Do not use anycantilever brake other than those intended by the brake manufacturer to work with a hangerless brace.

    4. Forks designed for standard quick releases: adjust the front wheel quick release to clear thedropout's counter bore. The quick release nut must be tightened after the wheel is properly seated intothe dropout's counter bore. Make sure four or more threads are engaged in the quick release nut whenit is closed. Orient the quick release lever in front of and parallel to the lower tube in the lockedposition. Forks designed for a thru-axle (not available for all forks): follow the installationinstructions that follow for the Maxle Quick Release system

    5. Keep in mind tire clearance as you choose tires. Maximum size is 2.7" wide or 710 mm diameterinstalled. Be sure to check this diameter whenever you change tires. To do this, remove air pressure andcompress the fork completely to make sure at least 5 mm of clearance exists between the top of the tireand the bottom of the crown. Exceeding maximum tire size will cause the tire to jam against the crownwhen the fork is fully compressed.

    PP OO PP LL OO CC RR EE MM OO TT EE II NN SS TT AA LL LL AA TT II OO NN

    The PopLoc Remote Lockout lever allows the rider to control the movement of theirsuspension fork without removing their hands from the handlebars.

    If needed, remove the grip, brake lever, and shifter from the left side (rider'sperspective) of the handlebar. If you are unfamiliar with the removal of these items,please consult the manufacturer's instructions.

    1. Slide the Poploc onto the handlebar.2. Re-install the shifter, brake lever, and grip on the handlebars. If you are unfamiliar with the installation of

    these items, please consult the manufacturer's instructions. Always adhere to the recommended torquespecifications for these items.

    3. Position the PopLoc as desired on the handlebar and tighten the clamp bolt to 20 in-lb (2.25 Nm)4. Forks with PopLoc Adjust: Turn the blue compression adjustment dial counterclockwise until it stops.5. Press the release button on the PopLoc.6. Install the cable in the PopLoc.7. Install the cable into the housing.

    DO NOT ADD THREADS TO ROCKSHOX THREADLESS STEERERS. THE STEERER TUBE CROWN ASSEMBLY IS A ONE-TIME PRESS FIT. REPLACEMENT OF THE ASSEMBLY MUST BE DONE TO CHANGE THE LENGTH, DIAMETER OR HEADSET TYPE (THREADED OR THREADLESS).

    DO NOT REMOVE OR REPLACE THE STEERER TUBE. THIS COULD RESULT IN THE LOSS OF CONTROL OF THE BICYCLE WITH POSSIBLE SERIOUS AND/OR FATAL INJURIES.

    W A R N I N G!1. The fork on your bicycle is designed for use by a single rider, on mountain trails, and similar off-road conditions.

    2. Before riding the bicycle, be sure the brakes are properly installed and adjusted. Use your brakes carefully and learn your brakes' characteristics by practicing your braking technique in non-emergency circumstances. Hard braking or improper use of the front brake can cause you to fall. If the brakes are out of adjustment, improperly installed or are not used properly, the rider could suffer serious and/or fatal injuries.

    3. Your fork may fail in certain circumstances, including, but not limited to, any condition that causes a loss of oil; collision or other activity bending or breaking the fork's components or parts; and extended periods of non-use. Fork failure may not be visible. Do not ride the bicycle if you notice bent or broken fork parts, loss of oil, sounds of excessive topping out, or other indications of a possible fork failure, such as loss of shock absorbing properties. Instead, take your bike to a qualified dealer for inspection and repair. In the event of a fork failure, damage to the bicycle or personal injury may result.

    4. Always use genuine RockShox parts. Use of aftermarket replacement parts voids the warranty and could cause structural failure to the shock. Structural failure could result in loss of control of the bicycle with possible serious and/or fatal injuries.

    5.Use extreme caution not to tilt the bicycle to either side when mounting the bicycle to a carrier by the fork drop-outs (front wheel removed). The fork legs may suffer structural damage if the bicycle is tilted while the drop-outs are in the carrier. Make sure the fork is securely fastened down with a quick release. Make sure the rear wheel is fastened down when using ANY bike carrier that secures the fork’s drop-outs. Not securing the rear can allow the bike’s mass to side-load the drop-outs, causing them to break or crack. If the bicycle tilts or falls out of its carrier, do not ride the bicycle until the fork is properly examined for possible damage. Return the fork to your dealer for inspection or call RockShox if there is any question of possible damage (See the International Distributor List). A fork leg or drop-out failure could result in loss of control of the bicycle with possible serious and/or fatal injuries.

    6. Forks designed for use with 'v'-style brakes: only mount cantilever-type brakes to the existing brake posts. Forks with hangerless style braces are only designed for ‘V’- style or hydraulic cantilever brakes. Do not use any cantilever brake other than those intended by the brake manufacturer to work with a hangerless brace. Do not route the front brake cable and/or cable housing through the stem or any other mounts or cable stops. Do not use a front brake cable leverage device mounted to the brace. Forks designed for use with disc-style brakes: follow the brake manufacturer's installation instruction for proper installation and mounting of the brake caliper.

    7. Observe all owner's manual instructions for care and service of this product.ROCKSHOX FORKS ARE DESIGNED FOR COMPETITIVE OFF-ROAD RIDING AND DO NOT COME WITH THE PROPER REFLECTORS FOR ON-ROAD USE. YOUR DEALER SHOULD INSTALL PROPER REFLECTORS TO MEET THE CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION’S (CPSC) REQUIREMENTS FOR BICYCLE STANDARDS IF THE FORK IS GOING TO BE USED ON PUBLIC ROADS AT ANY TIME.

    PP EE RR FF OO RR MM AA NN CC EE TT UU NN II NN GGRockShox forks can be tuned for your particular weight, riding style and terrain.

    U-turn Travel AdjustIMPORTANT: DO NOT ADJUST THE U-TURN SYSTEM WHEN THE FORK IS ‘LOCK’ POSITIION. ADJUSTING THE U-TURN WHILE THE FORK IS IN THE ‘LOCK’ POSITION MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE SYSTEM.

    Pike forks can be adjusted from 95 to 140 mm of travel. To determine the travel on your fork, usethe travel gradients on the upper tube. Compare this measurement to the chart below.

    Changing TravelTurning the U-turn adjuster knob counterclockwise increases travel. From minimum travel,there are approximately six turns to achieve maximum travel (140 mm). Each turn increases ordecreases the travel by 7.5 mm (fig. 1).

    IMPORTANT: STOP TURNING THE U-TURN ADJUSTER KNOB AFTER YOU’VE REACH 140 MM OF TRAVEL(MAXIMUM TRAVEL). TURNING THE KNOB PAST THIS POINT MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE U-TURN FEATURE.

    8. Feed the cable and housing into the cable stop on the fork crown.9. Gently pull on the cable and align it with the groove in the rotating cam of the Motion Control damper.10. Tighten the cable fixing bolt on the rotating cam to 8 in-lb (.9 Nm)

    Instal lat ion1. Position your wheel in the dropouts of the lower leg. The hub should seat firmly in the dropouts. Be

    sure to position the rotor in the caliper. Verify that neither the rotor, hub, nor rotor bolts interfere withthe lower legs. If unfamiliar with adjusting your disc brake, see your brake manufacturer's instructions.

    TIGHTEN1. Place Maxle lever in the open position (Fig. A).2.. Slide the axle through the right side of the hub until it engages

    the threads of the left drop out.3. To tighten the axle into the dropout, turn the axle lever

    clockwise until hand tight.NOTE : NEVER USE ANY OTHER TOOL TO TIGHTEN THE AXLE INTO THELOWER LEG. OVER-TIGHTENING OF THE AXLE CAN DAMAGE THE AXLEAND/OR THE LOWER LEG.

    SECURE1. To lock the axle into the lower leg close the Maxle quick release lever.2. The quick release mechanism is an "over-center cam", similar to the quick release found on many

    bicycle wheels. When closing the lever, tension should be felt when the quick release lever is in thehorizontal position (90 degrees to the lower leg), and the quick release lever should leave an imprint inthe palm of your hand. If resistance is not felt at the 90 degree position and if the lever does not leave aclear imprint in the palm of your hand, tension is insufficient. To increase tension, open the quickrelease lever turn the quick release lock nut in small increments until proper tension is felt.

    3. Verify that the axle is unable to spin or move in the dropout by grasping the axle lever and turningcounter clockwise.

    The Maxle Quick Release system allows the use of a standard 20 mm X 110 mm thru-axle hub for enhanced stiffness. The axle threads into the left fork leg, tightening the hub against the left drop out. The axle is fixed in place in the lower leg by the Maxle Quick Release lever.

    Riding with an improperly installed wheel can allow the wheel to move or disengage from the bicycle, causing damage to the bicycle, and serious injury or death to the rider. It is essential that that you:

    • Ensure that your axle, dropouts, and quick release mechanisms are clean and free of dirt or debris.

    • Ask your dealer to help you understand how to properly secure your front wheel using the Maxle Quick Release System

    • Apply the correct techniques when installing your front wheel• Never ride your bicycle unless you are sure the front wheel is installed properly

    and secure

    I M P O R T A N T C o n s u m e r S a f e t y I n f o r m a t i o n

    DIRT AND DEBRIS CAN ACCUMULATE BETWEEN THE DROPOUT OPENINGS. ALWAYS CHECK AND CLEAN THIS AREA WHEN REINSTALLING THE WHEEL. ACCUMULATED DIRT AND DEBRIS CAN COMPROMISE THE SECURITY OF THE AXLE, LEADING TO SERIOUS AND/OR FATAL INJURY.

    ‘LO C K ’ C O M P R E S S I O N (F I G . 2)In the ‘Lock’ position, the Motion Control system allows for a small amount ofcontrolled fork movement. This movement enables the front tire to track the terrainwithout deflecting off obstacles, allowing for better traction and steering control whencompared to a complete lockout system. To activate the ‘Lock’, turn the crown-mounted blue compression adjuster full clockwise or press forward on the PopLocRemote lever located on the handlebar.

    F LO O D G AT E A DJ U S T M E N T (F I G . 3)All forks with Motion Control Damping allow for fine-tuning of the ‘Lock’ setting. Therider can choose the point at which the ‘Lock’ setting can 'blow-off' and become activeto force inputs such as bumps or rocks. This adjustment is made using the Floodgate.Depending upon fork model, the Floodgate is adjusted either internally (requires a2.5mm hex wrench) or externally with the gold ‘Gate’ adjuster.

    For crown mounted adjusters, hold the adjuster in the ‘Lock’ position while adjustingthe internal Floodgate.

    NOTE: THE FLOODGATE IS INTENDED TO ADJUST THRESHOLD OF ‘LOCK’ BLOW-OFF IN THE ‘LOCK’ MODE ONLY.WHEN PERFORMING FLOODGATE ADJUSTMENTS, ENSURE THAT THE MOTION CONTROL SYSTEM IS ADJUSTEDTO ‘LOCK.’Under ‘Lock’, the maximum Floodgate setting results in a fork with minimal movementwhile the minimum Floodgate setting results in increased fork movement.

    NOTE: FOR MAXIMUM FORK SENSITIVITY AND MOVEMENT, RETURN THE FORK TO THE ‘OPEN’ POSITION.Floodgate settings should be used to adjust suspension compliance to medium sizedbumps and resistance to rider induced suspension movement (referred to as “bob”) inthe ‘Lock’ mode. When properly tuned, the Motion Control System will resist "bob," butprovide controlled suspension action in rough or aggressive terrain.

    Motion Control Damping System IMPORTANT NOTE: WHEN STORING A BICYCLE OR FORK UPSIDE-DOWN OR ON ITS SIDE, OIL SEALED IN THEUPPER TUBE CAN COLLECT ABOVE THE MOTION CONTROL DAMPER ASSEMBLY. UPON RETURNING THEBICYCLE/FORK TO A NORMAL RIDING POSITION, INITIAL PERFORMANCE OF THE MOTION CONTROL SYSTEM MAYBE LESS THAN OPTIMAL. TO QUICKLY RETURN THE FORK TO PROPER PERFORMANCE, RETURN THE FORK TO‘OPEN’ POSITION AND CYCLE THE FORK THROUGH ITS TRAVEL 10-20 TIMES. FOR INFORMATION ON RETURNINGYOUR FORK TO ‘OPEN’ POSITION, KEEP READING!

    The Motion Control Damping system allows riders to quickly adjust the feel andperformance of their suspension to match riding conditions without requiring pumps ortools. This system provides for wide-ranging control of compression and rebounddamping as well as ‘Lock’ threshold sensitivity.

    Proper setup of the Motion Control Damping system provides a range of options for efficient yetcomfortable performance. The instructions below describe setup and operation for both crownand remote activated forks.

    ‘O P E N ’ C O M P R E S S I O N (F I G . 1)In the ‘Open’ position, the Motion Control Damping system allows for maximumcompliance and fork movement. The ‘Open’ position provides ultimate control andcomfort on even the roughest terrain.

    To return your fork to the ‘Open’ position:

    • For forks with the crown-mounted blue compression adjuster, rotate the adjuster fullycounterclockwise.

    • For PopLoc equipped forks, press the "unlock" release button on the remote (as indicatedby the open padlock icon on the button).

    C O M P R E S S I O N A DJ U S T M E N T (F I G . 4)Some fork models also feature adjustable compression damping. Increased compressiondecreases fork movement in the ‘Open’ position. Compression adjustment can be used tohelp combat brake dive and "squatting" under hard cornering.

    For crown activated forks, compression damping increases to ‘Lock’ as the crown-mounted actuator rotates 90 degrees clockwise. Position the actuator anywhere withinthe range from ‘Open’ to ‘Lock’ to suit the desired level of compression damping.

    Forks equipped with the PopLoc Adjust provide compression damping adjustment forthe ‘Open’ position. Turning the blue adjuster on the PopLoc adjust clockwise increasescompression damping for the ‘Open’ position. The PopLoc lever features gradients tohelp illustrate the current level of compression. Eight complete turns of adjustment areprovided.

    TIP: ADJUSTING COMPRESSION ON FORKS EQUIPPED WITH POPLOC ADJUST IS BEST DONE WITH THE FORK IN‘LOCK’ POSITION. NOTE: THE COMPRESSION SETTING DOES NOT ADVERSELY EFFECT YOUR FORK'S PERFORMANCE OVER HIGHSPEED IMPACTS.

    External Rebound AdjustmentRebound damping controls the speed at which a fork returns to its full extensionfollowing compression. Located at the bottom of the right fork leg is the reboundadjuster knob. Turning the adjuster in the direction indicated by the "rabbit" on therebound speed decal decreases rebound damping, causing the fork to return to fullextension faster. Turning the adjuster in the direction indicated by the "turtle"increases rebound damping, slowing the return of the fork to full extension.

    Excessive rebound damping will cause the fork to "pack up" over successive bumps,reducing travel and causing the fork to bottom out. Set your fork to rebound as fast aspossible without "topping out" or kicking back. This allows your fork to follow thecontours of the trail, maximizing stability, traction and control.

    Sett ing SagRockShox forks are designed to sag when you are sitting on your bike. Sag is thecompression of the fork caused by the rider's weight. Proper sag allows the frontwheel to follow the contour of the terrain as you ride.

    To measure sag, set the fork to maximum travel (140 mm). Install a zip tie on the uppertube of the fork flush against the wiper seal. Sit on the bike with normal riding apparel.Step off the bike, and measure the distance between the wiper seal and the zip tie. This isyour sag. The sag should be between 15 and 25 percent of maximum travel. If you'reunable to achieve optimum sag you may need to change the fork's spring.

    Changing the Spring RateSpring rate is the amount of force needed to compress a spring one inch. Changingyour fork's coil spring for a spring of a higher or lower rate will alter the overall feel ofyour fork. Higher spring rates make the fork feel more "stiff", while lower spring ratesmake the fork more "supple". Contact your local RockShox dealer to orderreplacement springs.

    NOTE: WHEN DECREASING TRAVEL (SEE “U-TURN TRAVEL ADJUST”), YOU INCREASE THE SPRING RATE.MM AA II NN TT EE NN AA NN CC EE

    To maintain the high performance, safety, and long life of your fork, periodicmaintenance is required. If you ride in extreme conditions, maintenance should beperformed more frequently.
